9. Recommendation:

Evaluation recommendation 2.1.1B Remove the Saleapaga Shelter, Manono Jetty and Water Resources Management initiatives (for Falealupo and Manono) from the Project.

Management Response: [Added: 2016/12/21]

Management response: Advise relevant stakeholders that the initiatives are unable to proceed due to the following reasons:

Saleapaga Shelter Initiative

The development of a shelter to accommodate up to 100 people in times of extreme weather events is a major project that will require significant financial resources, professional expertise and human resources. The scope of this initiative is currently barely in development, key reasons are:

  • There are currently no existing established standards or designs for building a cyclone proof hazard shelter in Samoa. MWTI has provided advice on compliance with the current Building Code, but design would require professional engineering and architectural expertise.
  • The land area is only half the size formally required to accommodate the proposed number of people.
  • Geo-technical and environmental assessment will need to be conducted to assess land stability and suitability for the proposed development.
  • Development consent will need to be approved.
  • There has been no feasibility or costing done for the above pre-development processes or the actual building works.
  • Faofao Beach Fales have an existing substantial enclosed 2 story concrete accommodation building that could be used for temporary emergency situations when it is no longer safe for guests to stay in beach fales. 
  • There has been internal discussions within the STA Project Team about the ongoing use, maintenance and security of the building and an Agreement Note has been drafted. However, this has not been discussed with the community or land owners and conditions of the agreement will be difficult to monitor and enforce.

 The MTE Consultant proposed an alternative approach that integrated a shelter with a new hinterland tourism development. This approach could still provide the proponents a source of funding, and being part of a tourism operation could provide the resources for maintenance. This approach could comply with the objectives of a reformed Small Grants Program – meaning that a tourism operator or partnership could apply for the funding and access expertise through the proposed group of experts.

Manono Jetties Initiative

The Project does not have sufficient funds to construct the jetties, so only design work is proposed as part of this Project. However, no feasibility or costing has been done and there is no indicative source of funding to construct the jetties.

The MTE Consultant cautioned against spending Project funds on design only, as design would not generate a measurable benefit for the Project. The Consultant recommended that the Samoan government sought another package of funding that addressed both design and construction. 

Moreover, water security had been identified as the other most relevant focus area for this TDA, therefore the initial idea was for the Project to develop Integrated Rainwater Use and Capture Plans. These plans would have provided the strategic direction for operators to write funding applications to the Small Grants Program to implement recommendations.  However, the operators most in need of water harvesting have already applied to the Small Grants Program under this Project and are implementing facilities, without the Plans.

Water Resource Management Initiatives

The key areas that were identified for this initiative were Falealupo & Satuiatua (TDA 5) and Manono (TDA 3).

During the recent MTR consultations in January 2016, water resource management was either not identified as a major concern or priority, or had already been addressed through the first round of the Small Grants Program.

Falealupo Beach Fales have two very large water tanks that are filled once a week, which meet their water demands.

Satuiatua would benefit from improved water access as water pressure was very low, although it was not identified as a priority. Discussions with the property owner concluded that in terms of climate change risks, the large trees surrounding their property posed the greatest risk to their physical assets and the safety of their guests and staff.

Consultation during the MTE with these operators revealed that the critical part of the issue had been addressed without the Plans, and that if there was a need for more tanks, such as to collect water for sharing with other parts of the local community, then they would apply through a second round of the Small Grants Program.

Management response:  A Sustainable Tourism Development Expert should be recruited to provide the Project manager with significant strategic tourism expertise that can maximize the integration of the project outcomes into mainstream tourism policy, planning and development, starting with the integration of the Management Plans, Technical Guidelines and Micro Finance Report into STA tourism policy and planning instruments, and following on with assisting the Small Grants Officer to re-design the second round of the Grants Program, building tourism industry capacity to integrate climate change resilience and adaptation into their business, and providing leadership in the development of products and experience that are an alternative to fine weather dependent beach  experiences. The Tourism Industry Expert should have strong experience in tourism industry development, climate change adaptation and project management.

The expert would be remotely available to the team and visit Samoa approximately five times over the remaining Project duration, to work closely with the Project team in solving their barriers to implementation and adding value to their work to maximize implementation capability. The expert would report directly to the STA CEO and UNDP Focal Point. The assignment could be broken into two phases to reflect a first phase orientated around work planning and design, and a second phase orientated around construction, supervision and case study documentation (linked to Recommendation 1.2.3).
